I almost forgot there is one more type of auction, for me it’s not exciting at all. In this type of auction price is fixed. Why would they called then auction?
They call it Buy it Now.
The way it works is that you name a fixed price for your item if a user bids that price, the auction is automatically closed and that user is named the high bidder. Note, however, that the Buy it Now price is active only until the first bid is placed. If the first bidder places a bid lower than the fixed price, the fixed price is removed and the auction proceeds normally.
This type is most popular among Powersellers with a lot of similar inventory. They’re likely to place the same item up for auction week after week in this case, the fixed price becomes the standard retail price of the item, and you can ship items as soon as you find a willing buyer you don’t have to wait the standard seven days for a normal auction to end.
You might also want to consider fixed price(buy it now) around the holidays, when buyers don’t always want to wait around seven whole days to see if they’ve won an item desperate shoppers will sometimes pay a premium to get something now.
Probably, you’ll find more ways to use this fixed price in your own style.
Over 16 million items is listed for auction, Everyday.
I’m serious about it. These items are organized into categories, some of them quite specific. Potential buyers can find merchandise by browsing through these categories, or by using eBay’s search feature.
It’s hard to imagine, all those millions of item listings make the eBay Website rather large and often cumber some to navigate. The truth is that eBay has a ton of content and community on this site if you know where to find it.
When you start to use ebay most of the time you will see Home Page. From Home Page and on , you can access auction most important features and services.
The middle of the webpage is probably most of time ignored. You will see big advertisement image. You should to focus on the top and left side of the page where is the most of the links.
Across the top of every page is a navigation bar. Sometimes navigation bar you’ll see on one of the sides(left,right). Navigation bar includes links(buttons) to the other sections of the eBay website like:
Browse, Search, Sell, My eBay, and Community.
More often every day you going to click on:
These links you’ll see right on the top it’s hard to miss it.
Left side of the Home Page is a collection of links to specific eBay item categories and specialty sites. Assume you want to find a particular type of item, you just need to click through the categories listed on the left, or to search for items using the Search box (labeled “What are you looking for?”), located underneath the Top Bar.
No matter how much you trying to find everything, it’s hard. No matter how much you trying to find everything, it’s hard. Rookies and even experienced users never find some of eBay’s most interesting and useful features. Matter of fact, you simply can’t access many features from the start point(Home Page).
